ADILBEK DZHAKSYBEKOV, HEAD OF KAZAKH PRESIDENTIAL ADMINISTRATION:
- We have reached a new level of program implementation. A draft of a new alphabet is ready. According to the Sacred Geography of Kazakhstan project, 600 facilities have been selected. Scientific restoration work has begun at 22 facilities. As part of the Tugan Zher project, a large amount of work is being done. 17 books were selected for translation under the 100 New Textbooks in the Kazakh Language project. This is only the beginning.
One of such innovative projects is a crowdsourcing.kz (краудсорсинг.кз) portal. The web creators are confident that the platform will help to establish a dialogue between society and authorities.
MUKHTAR MANKEYEV, CHAIRMAN OF COUNCIL, NATIONWIDE MOVEMENT ‘KAZAKHSTAN 2050’:
- We proposed that mayor’s office and ministries can publish draft programs on our platform which then can lead to discussion between public and the mayor’s offices. We take an active citizen as the best consultant for the government.
As part of the Modernization of Public Consciousness program, 30 projects are planned in Eastern Kazakhstan. For example, the Civilization Phenomenon of East Kazakhstan project will allow not only to restore some of the historical monuments, but also to conduct various studies.
